Sonics commented on the post, Mercedes will consider using team orders after Monza

2 months ago

In the round-up: Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff says the team will consider after the next race whether to impose team orders on Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas.

What they say

Wolff was asked whether he intends to impose ‘number two’ status on Bottas, who is 87 points behind Hamilton with 200 available over the remaining races:

I hate to do that. It’s completley against my racing instinct. We try to be always very neutral to both drivers and we haven’t done it yet and we haven’t discussed it.

Let’s see how Monza pans out and how it goes, and then we will address the question whether we need to put all force behind one driver.

But at the moment it we owe it to the two men and to Formula 1 to not interfere into the race.
